Traditional Irish Music
We have added in some different sound files to this blog. All worth a listen to because this is one inventive group with a very creative take on traditional music. May not be for the purists but it is definitely great to see young guys like these taking us to some new places.
Formed in late 2011 as part of the annual folk festival, Sligo Live, they are a Sligo and Limerick based band that formed through years of musical friendships from playing together at certain festivals around Ireland. The band incorporates Irish music with other genres such as folk, rock and new age bluegrass. A vibrant new band playing an exciting mix of traditional based compositions with richly developed layers of fantastic harmony. The band includes JPTrio members, Ted Kelly (banjo, tenor guitar, vocals), Jos Kelly (button accordion, keyboard, vocals), Paddy Hazleton (percussion, vocals) and Limerick based musicians, accordion and melodeon powerhouse Darren Roche and virtuoso banjo & guitar player Cillian Doheny.
